The situation in Regina has now sunk to humiliating depths.
As if the Mo Price debacle wasn't embarrassing enough, Ego Jones has flushed another massive upfront signing bonus down the toilet. How did Ego Jones not realize Lemon wouldn't fit in with his ridiculous schemes? And why would he ever give Lemon half of his salary before the season ever started?
At this point, Jim Barker is just toying with the Riders. Certainly not a deal that I would have made, but he gave up absolutely nothing to get a back up DE for Hickman - - incidentally, the same DE that Rider Fan promised would more than make up for the departure of John Chick.
Fatty Sewell has no hope of being a pro-level OLineman. He's a poor man's Pat Neufeld. But considering the Riders were using a back up DLineman on the OLine last game, it looks like Fatty Sewell will be an immediate starter for them. What a disaster that's going to be. I just hope it doesn't cost Durant another season with an injury.
Mitch Gale was the 4th string clipboard holder for the Argos - - but given the Riders horrific mess at QB behind Durant, Gale instantly becomes the second stringer in Regina.
The most valuable piece of this trade on either side was the draft pick that Toronto received.
It's hilarious that Ego Jones and the Riders will be paying the majority of Lemon's salary for the rest of the year. Even if he contributes nothing to the Argos, the deal was worth it just for the laugh at yet another Ego Jones screw up.
